INTRODUCTION TO BEER
Beer is: A non-distilled, fermented extract of cereal (usually malted barley) which is flavoured with hops.
Beer is the third most popular drink in the world, after water and tea! It’s origins can be traced back as far as Ancient Egypt but over the millennia, hundreds of different brewing processes and styles have developed. Beer is broken into three main categories, into which all the different styles fall.
• Top fermented • Lively, unpredictable
